Dr. Sones helped me enormously. Simply put, he is the best.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Sones is a very nice man. However, he is way too old to still be practicing. He's very old fashioned and tends to get confused easily. He even laughed at me when I told him about having a certain mental disorder that he'd never heard of. Needs to retire. I have been fighting his bills for the past 2 years with his office, they have a lack of understanding.
